Have I been paying attention? | On looking forward to 2022

I haven't been sleeping well for the past couple of days. I keep having all sorts of dreams and nightmares. A melange of wonderful colorful dreams to darker difficult memories that occurred this year. The interesting part of this is that all of the dreams centered on details I had missed or dismissed.ย ย 
In December of each year,ย ย I usually take three to four days to think about what happenedย during the year. I look at it as an essential part of my year, and this exercise becomes the catalyst for my next creative works.
This time around the dreams and nightmares have accelerated this process while also elongating it. It has been a lot more information to process than ever before, and this made me wonder: have I been paying attention? Did all the noise this year distract me from what was truly important?
